Vaccine for a barrel of oil: FT declassifies price for COVID-19 drug

By | July 29, 2020

The Financial Times, citing sources, declassified the cost of the coVID-19 drug from the American company Moderna. Judging by the figures, one dose of the vaccine will cost the price of a barrel of oil – $25-30, and the rate – $50-60.

“The price charged to governments will be higher than the price agreed for competing jabs from Pfizer and BioNTech,” the Financial Times notes.

Citing their own sources close to the negotiations of the American biotechnology company Moderna with potential buyers, the media declassified the price for the vaccine from COVID-19.

Judging by the price tag, the cost of one dose of the drug from coronavirus will cost the user about the same price as a barrel of Brent oil. Thus, the publication reports that one dose of the drug will cost $25-30, and the course of vaccinations is twice as expensive – $50-60.

It is noted that this cost of the drug is aimed at the United States, as well as on high-income countries.

However, the proposed price tag for the American vaccine against coronavirus is not yet final.
